Face-to-Face and Telephone fundraising are how we engage and inspire our community.

SickKids is fundraising in support of Precision Child Health: a shift from one-size-fits-all medicine, to healthcare tailored to each unique child. Our door-to-door and telephone fundraisers play an integral role in this journey. Reaching donors in their communities, through a respectful face-to-face or telephone interaction, is our most immediate approach to enlisting donors to support us.


Our Door-to-Door program was designed in 1999 to gain support from our community. Our fundraisers seek out donors who are committed to making long-term monthly donations to help us continue the fight against the greatest challenges in child health.


In 2004, we began face-to-face fundraising in shopping malls across Ontario and other venues like local markets, events, and Billy Bishop Airport. Our fundraisers are trained to engage and inform shoppers and the public in these busy environments about the ways they can support the Hospital.


Our Telemarketing program reaches out to our community of SickKids supporters in a respectful, meaningful way. We work with our trusted telephone fundraising partner to help us build strong connections with donors. Our telephone fundraisers are trained to speak on behalf of SickKids Foundation and share the impact of donor support on children’s health. They are instrumental in keeping much needed funds flowing to the Hospital to save lives, find new cures and provide world-class care.
